"Indivisibility of light,
the source embodied by the shadow it casts
two movements capturing the elapsed landscape,
of tempered exhaust, a loathsome visage"
Tempered Exhaust draws its first breath from the backing track of Unseen Force's 2015 "While Light Is Cast" released as 30 hand-cut lathes, taking 'Shadow Lies Drunk' into a structural narrative blurring the lines between strategic fiction and experience. Tape loop and contact mic manipulations used with complete restraint and purpose in each composition, each track dredging through Autek filtered murk towards a single moment of clarity.
This release will be our first pro-dubbed and pad printed cassette, and will be presented as a limited oversize artist edition, as well as a more widely available standard norelco edition
